Because of an inarticulate, unprincipled and scared RINO GOP, that’s why.
Like I’ve been saying here on this blog, as well as in private, the US political landscape is in the throes of a prefect storm. An extremist Leftist radical (Marxist) president, who leads a subverted political party (democrats) that has become indistinguishable from the federal government, and whose radical ranks fill the ever burgeoning bureaucracy, met with a weak-in-the-knees opposition, who as Mark Levin reminds, cannot articulate what their party stands for any more and are afraid of mounting any serious kind of strategic offence for fear of having it used against them.
Neither party represents the vast majority of people who do not want their society to become like Europe, and who fear, with great justification, that their hard work, and the work of past generations is being squandered by a ruling class more in tune with self aggrandizement and party hat counting, than in safeguarding the constitution and the rights of the citizens that it enshrines.
It’s a perfect storm I tell you, and the only people capable of weathering it out, are the ones calling for a return to the founding document, which means a return to the rule of law and justice. The Tea Party is that bulwark between lawlessness and anarchy, and the civil society. What do you choose?

GUEST VIEW: Obama’s royal idea

President Barack Obama was elected, in part, because he was thought to have new ideas. But he has begun implementing those ideas by an ancient process eschewed by modern democracies governed by congresses and parliaments — one that dates back to 1600 England.
King Charles the First believed strongly in the divine right of kings and the royal prerogative; that is, ruling according to his own personal sense of justice while ignoring Parliament. He fought Parliament, insisting on the divine right of kings, and it eventually cost him the throne.
We should be concerned when the Chief Executive ignores Congress and acts outside and beyond legislative authority delegated by Congress.
The president has the power to implement laws, but this does not mean WHAT laws are implemented.
For example, suspending the business mandate deadline for the Affordable Care Act was not within the scope of the president’s power. (President Bill Clinton once tried to abolish a statutory office — the Council of Environmental Quality. Someone apparently forgot that the president cannot abolish a statute, but, once realizing the mistake, the staff quietly reinstated the office.)
Imagine a Republican president — believing, for example, that the capital gains tax is too high — simply deciding, without congressional approval, that his administration will no longer collect or enforce the tax!
The Constitution vests the legislative powers of the nation in the Congress and charges the president with faithfully executing those laws.
President Obama is assuming powers well beyond the scope of those authorized by the Constitution; he is assuming the constitutional role of Congress in issuing legislative orders affecting the people’s lives.
